Our postgraduate options provide an opportunity to gain a deep understanding of legal concepts and pursue specialist studies in an area of law you are passionate about.

Our programs cater to both law and non-law graduates, and we have coursework and research masters options available depending on your area of interest. For those who want to advance their knowledge in a particular area or want to trial postgraduate study, it is possible to enrol in single courses on a non-award basis.
